A couple of weeks ago, I was invited (along with several other local influencers) to check out Pala Casino Spa & Resort. How I had never been there when it is less than 40 minutes from my home, I will never know! We had an absolute blast from start to finish and can’t wait to go back!

As soon as we arrived, we were immediately greeted and escorted over to the Influencer welcome table to check in. The most fab welcome basket and white roses (my fave!) were waiting for us in our room. Then it was off to The Cave Lounge to mix and mingle with the other influencers!

We were treated to yummy island style fruity drinks (which went down WAY too easy) and the most delicious appetizers. A+ for presentation! There was a pineapple theme throughout our whole experience and it made for several excuses to take MORE PICS!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen these mini pineapples at my local grocery store (and even bought one once!) and had no idea what they could be used for other than decoration. Well my friends…have you ever seen a more adorable and creative way to serve appetizers than in tiny scooped out pineapples!?! I honestly feel like having a party JUST so I can do this!

We were then whisked off to a slot tournament! If you’ve never played in one, be prepared for some fast paced fun! I had never participated in one and had no idea what I was doing but it ended up being one of the highlights of the day for us because my hubby took FIRST place! We won a spa gift certificate AND added play money for our next trip!

We then went to The Oak Room (a world-class steak house) and were treated to a four course appetizer/wine pairing. To be honest, I am not much of a wine drinker, but the presentation by our sommelier absolutely made me want to become one! Oh, and the food was to die for!

Then we went to the Underground Wine Cave and sipped on another glass of wine and had even more appetizers! With over 480 labels from California, France & Italy…this place is a wine lovers dream. P.S. They also offer top shelf drinks and a limited selection of craft beers.

I couldn’t resist the table of props so here I am again with ALL.THE.PROPS. #diditfortheinsta

Then we had a quick break to freshen up before it was off to the UB40 concert! I grew up listening to UB40 and had forgotten how many songs I knew & loved. Such a great walk down memory lane. The Starlight Theater has outdoor seating and the weather was just perfect! But the best part is that when the concert was over…you can just go upstairs to your room (or the bar or casino)!

Here is the gorgeous view from our room of the pool, mountain view and the outdoor seating for the concert. I wish I would have snapped more pics of our room so I could share with you. Hopefully some of you caught the tour on my Instagram story!

Before we left we made sure to check out the casino. I love to play the Wheel of Fortune slots and my hubby visited the blackjack table.

A HUGE shout-out and THANK YOU to Pala Casino Spa & Resort for taking such good care of us! We had an amazing time and are already looking at the calendar to schedule our next trip! If you live in Southern CA, I highly recommend checking Pala out for a weekend getaway.
